Default Homemade Floor Cleaner?

Just wondering if anyone has a tried and true recipe for homemade floor cleaner that's safe for use around animals and is good at removing smells? Odie's pee pad is in the same room as the cat litter box and I always use nature's miracle for quick clean ups and I also mop the floor with it every second day, but I'm looking for something different for the occasional mopping. I just tried vinegar and water and am waiting to see how it turns out. It's just linoleum flooring, so I'm not worried about colour changes, etc.

What's your fave floor cleaning recipe?

I use vinegar and water... for everything. It's really the only cleaner that I use. With the dogs and cats eating off the kitchen floor, and then the dogs licking the floor after I clean it, the cats being right up against the windows and then licking themselves, and the sensitivity of the chinchillas to smells and chemicals (not to mention my own sensitivities) I really don't feel I can trust anything else.

Also, I haven't found anything else that actually gets rid of smells instead of just covering them up. Vinegar all the way!
